I actually have two different questions to ask.  The first is:  What
companies are offering an automated special stainer for routine special
stains?  I know that Ventana and Biogenex have one.  Are there any others
out there?   Does anyone have any experience with them?  I would really like
to hear from you.  Secondly, I am wondering how many people are putting a
control (for routine special stains, not immuno)  on the same slide as the
test tissue.   I am particularly interested in whether you have ever noted a
case of microorganisms migrating from the control to the test section at the
bottom of the slide?  Thanks!
